Cell Phone Sales Down In Japan

Shipments in Japan of cell phone handsets, including personal handy-phone system (PHS) equipment, fell 3.8% in February from a year before to 3,494,000 units, down for the second straight month, an industry association said Tuesday.

Domestic shipments of cell phones, excluding PHS handsets, also posted a yearly fall for the second consecutive month, but rose 18.4% from the previous month due to the launch of new services for third-generation handsets, the Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association said.
